About Me

Zeshan Usman, the founder of Usman Law Firm, LLC, has helped thousands of people fight back against auto insurance companies, the IRS, and abusive debt collectors. His practice is limited to personal injury and debt relief.

He holds a B.A. in Finance from the University of Florida, a J.D., M.B.A. from the University of Miami and has been a licensed Real Estate Broker, Mortgage Broker and General Contractor.

Zeshan understands not only the U. S. Bankruptcy Code, but all the other laws that impact consumers – the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Truth in Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, and more. He is effective because he is informed, knowledgeable, and current. Every year, Zeshan spends countless weeks in conference halls, listening to and learning from the greatest legal minds from around the country. He absorbs the best advice, identifies the strongest tactics and the most convincing arguments, and then adapts them to his clients’ needs.

Zeshan was raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and later moved to Wisconsin. He and his wife live just outside Madison with their two children.

Zeshan has been selected as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2012, 2013, and 2014. In 2014 he became a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership requires winning a multi-million dollar verdict, award or settlement.  Visit for a free copy of his eBook, "The Truth About Bankruptcy."

  • Carolyn Crawford

    In my divorce mediation and collaborative law practice, I frequently have clients who are overwhelmed with debt issues. Attorney Usman skillfully guides them through their options so that they can make informed decisions. His free consultations are timely and immensely useful. Whether my clients file for bankruptcy or not, they always appreciated his candor and resourcefulness.
